The Jubilee-athon!

On 29th and 30th January 2022, we’re hosting a 24 hour fundraising swimming relay at the pool and we need as much local support as we can muster!

First up, we need fundraisers. Lots of them. Throw on your swimming costume, strap on your goggles and help us in our bid to Save Jubilee Pool. Over 24 hours we’ll be joined by as many participants as we can safely gather to try and swim continuously – with at least one person in the water at all times – nearly 10,000 lengths or the equivalent of swimming from Bristol to London.

Join us for an hour of swimming and help raise money towards our fight to save the pool. The money will help us access legal advice, accountancy, marketing and communications, funding, specialist structural surveys, as well as help to develop our business plan. We are extremely thankful to have received some pro bono support so far, but need to raise additional funds to keep going.

Secondly, we need volunteers! Whether participating in the swim or a keen advocate of Jubilee Pool who just wants to help out with the running of the event, we need your help! Volunteers are required poolside and at the frontdesk throughout the 24 hour event, with tasks including keeping tally of how many lengths participants are swimming, handing out energy drinks and keeping everyone motivated through the ‘wee hours.

Email and type ‘Swimathon’ in the subject line before expressing your interest in volunteering.
